Who Is Eligible for Hospice

Hospice care is designed to off­er palliative care and support services to people with life-limiting illnesses as well as to their families. Palliative care is treatment that enhances comfort and improves the quality of the patient’s life. This kind of care creates an option for patients who are no longer seeking a cure for their illness and want to remain where they live while receiving assistance with symptom management and maintaining their quality of life. Hospice care is available to persons with heart disease, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, cancer, AIDS and any other life-limiting illness. This care is provided regardless of residence – at home, in a long term care or assisted living facility or current hospitalization.
